Quotes in the episode:
- 13:39: “One of the things that I think is super important to do is have a lot of clarity about who your audience is, like, really who they are.” –Auorora Gregory
- 21:56: “It’s important that we present ourselves in a way that communicates that we are all about supporting them. And what that does is it makes you the type of speaker that one they want to have back if they have another event, and you definitely want to be invited back. And it makes you a speaker that they have no qualms about referring.” – Aurora Gregory
- 24:58: There’s more value than just money. A summit is going to be probably free, you’re going to get people in for free, but you’re going to get a lot of email subscribers, which you would pay for normally or put your time blood and tears into marketing to get those. So, you’re right there’s more forms of currency, sometimes other than money.” –Hailey Rowe
